MANNHEIM STEAMROLLER COMING TO KANSAS CITY
PANDORA Unforgettable Moments Presents
MANNHEIM STEAMROLLER CHRISTMAS By CHIP DAVIS
KANSAS CITY, MO – Nov. 27, 2012 Mannheim Steamroller and PANDORA Jewelry, the tour sponsor, will present the best the holiday has to offer this season. The group will perform live for two performances only in Kansas City at the Music Hall, December 27 at 7:30 pm and December 28 at 8:00 pm. Tickets are on sale now starting at $55 and are available online at www.theaterleague.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, the Municipal Auditorium box office, or by calling 800.745.3000.
The tour, now in its 27th year, is still met by sold-out audiences and was one of the top 20 concert tours in the nation last year. This year Mannheim Steamroller’s two touring ensembles will hold over 90 performances throughout the United States.
Grammy Award® winner Davis will direct and co-produce the performances with MagicSpace Entertainment. The shows will feature the favorite Christmas music of Mannheim Steamroller along with state-of-the-art multimedia effects in an intimate setting.
In 1984, Mannheim Steamroller released Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, an album that changed the sounds of Christmas. Already a multi-platinum recording artist through its Fresh Aire series, Davis decided to record an album of Christmas music combining the group’s signature mix of Renaissance instruments with rock & roll beats.
The resulting album was a runaway hit and Mannheim Steamroller went on to become the biggest selling Christmas music artist in history. The group’s Christmas tour has become an annual holiday tradition right along with decorating the tree, exchanging presents and creating unforgettable moments with friends and family.
